The Mountain View Memorial Cemetery recently posted its new website, writes Timothy MB Farrell, president, Mountain View Memorial Cemetery Inc. It can be found on the web at http://www.mo-untainviewmemorial.org/.
The site replaces an older site developed by some graduate students at UCLA, the first of its kind for a Hood River County cemetery. The site was designed by Helen Hendricks of Pinduli Design (http://www.pinduli.com/about.html), who specializes in website design.
“The site has some excellent photographs of the property and has a detailed history of the property and its present operations,” Farrell states. There is also a brief biography of Nathaniel Coe, the county’s founder, with a link to a more detailed discussion of his life.
Coe was good friends with President Filmore and other political luminaries of his day, having been himself a longtime New York state representative.
Next, the site has a list of products and services. Most significantly, the site is now capable of allowing purchases to be made on line through PayPal.
The information and resources section has a listing of all those buried on the property. There is a map on the property donated by the local historical society for visitors with burial coordinates to quickly and easily locate graves.
There is also a link to all the obituaries of those buried on the property, an excellent tool for genealogists and others.
Other information includes the rules (hours of operation, etc.) and links to other resources (Cemetery Association of Oregon, etc.). As a nonprofit corporation, the historic property is always looking for donations and for volunteers.
A PayPal account allows donations to be made through the website and contact information is given for the sexton. The property is managed by Farrell, a local attorney (http://www.avvo.com/attor-neys/97031-or-timothy-farrell-655922.html).
